No way. TV's are male (Big Red) and trailers are female (Evenstar).

Richard, on looking at your build sheet again, I don't know how you can use a 19' without the hatch. This is a 60" x 80" area and sometimes the hatch does not even seem sufficient.

Interruption in programming. Ours is hatch down unlike some others.

Leaving out a standard feature is very different from adding customizations. The hatch can always be there without using it. You also might change your mind and want to put some outside items.

i thought I'd piggyback onto this thread with our about to be finalized build sheet, rather than start a new one -- consolidation and all that. So here goes. Our original date was early November -- however when a February date opened, Tammy let us change because that was what we originally had asked for. i am really glad because the extra time allowed us to fully understand what was available -- both the listed options and the ones I learned about from the Forum -- plus there were some listed options I would have probably ignored if not for the Forum.

Reverse sink and stove -- We had this in the Airstream and I liked being able to pass the food right from the stove outside. Plus I didn't want the stove next to where I slept and I think it makes the space feel bigger. Tammy said we shouldn't get the exhaust fan because of the potential to bump our heads when it is so close to the door, but we wouldn't have gotten it anyway since so many Forum members commented that with the Maxi fan it wasn't necessary and it kind of makes the trailer feel roomier.

6.7 cu foot fridge with Texas fans

Additional opening window over sink
Polar Cub Air conditioner. Reace had a few left in s tock (they're discontinued) It is quieter. It is also a couple inches higher and more expensive, but since I hate air conditioner noise and Terry absolutely needs it, this seemed like a good plan for us.

Bike Rack Ready
Cabinet door at end of bench
Dual 6V batteries
Anderson Hitch
Extra Insulation and Thermal Windows but not foam underneath
LED exterior porch light
LED light above storage ox
4 Captain reading lamps (two over bed and two over dinette)
Opening window in bathroom

Removable power cord. This took a lot of thinking. I liked the non-removable because it seems you'd only need to pull out as much as you needed and it wouldn't drag on the ground like I think the removable will. However, when I was at the Escape factory and saw where the non-removable actually goes and I saw the opening, I decided that we'd go with the removable. If anything ever got tangled we'd never be able to get to it. However I still keep thinking about this option.

STainless Steel sink and chrome faucet -- Terry felt this would be more durable -- I'm not sure about that but I also knew that we'd probably not be good enough about keeping the white one clean, and it didn't really matter to me (although I like the white color better)

storage box,
surge protector
solar panel
Formica Sky terra 7694-58
Custom Fabric -- Tru Blu
These last two I think were the most extravagant thing we did. If we'd bought the trailer off the lot or used I wouldn't have thought about this but since we had the choice I wanted colors more to my taste. Because a patterned fabric needs twice as many yards, I was determined to find a solid color and to stick with formica in the 58 group. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this works.

Additional set led brake lights
power tongue jack --
REinforce 4 walls
Fill and purge propane tanks
pedal toilet
ADDitional outlet in center of kitchen face between sink and stove
Additional 12 V outlet upper left corner over dinette
Vivid Blue Graphic

Hope this is useful for someone. Just writing it down is useful for me.

Three things, is the window in the kitchen opening?
Ask Reace if you turn the stove sideways, will it give you more counter space and stick with the 2 burner stove.
If you go with the Polar Cub you can not get the digital thermostat, that is really nice to have in such a small space. If you go with stock Dometic, you can get it with the furnace and the a/c.

hmm, I thought I replied, but i guess I didn't. The kitchen window opens, Terry talked with Reace about the digital thermostat and had decided not to go with it even before we decided on the polar cub. The bottom line is the noise -- we spent an evening online looking at reviews of both air conditioners and spoke to Reace and decided that we'd have a happier marriage if Terry could use the air conditioner without me complaining. I still reserve the right to complain, but the polar cub may help.

We're reinforcing the wall between the fridge and the bed, between the stove and the bed, between the dinette and the bathroom and the front facing bathroom wall.
